Solace State is a cinematic 3D visual novel game that deconstructs the cyberpunk genre with a heady focus on the joys and heartbreaks of civilians from different walks of life. There are 38 endings, 31 hand-drawn characters, 3 potential romances… and an abstract 3D cityscape presented with a roving camera to reveal this personal and political tale of finding a home in a hypermodern world.
